How to Start a Drone Business
The objective of this three (3) hour workshop is to present participants with the required information that anyone who wants to enter into the drone services industry needs to know. Participants will learn about setting up a successful and legal (regulatory: Federal and State) drone business, what it takes to obtain a FAA-Part 107 'Commercial Drone Pilot' license, the different types of drone equipment available, and the various market 'verticals' that are profitable. The worldwide market for drones is estimated to top $127 Billion USD within the next two to three years. How much of that market share will you be ready to share in?
